The Cat Chronicles

Kitten is injured. I don't know what happened to her but I think it was yesterday or the day before. She has lacerations on a front leg and a hind leg, and she can't jump. She's been laying around looking glum. The injuries look like maybe she tangled with a fence or a door, not so much like another creature, though I suppose it is possible. I don't think any bones are broken, but the wounds are painful. I moved her food bowl down to where she could reach it. She has been particularly needy, too, wanting to sit or lay on me a lot. I pet her constantly, wanting the love to help her heal.

Most Americans.......

Breaking News Alert (from the Washington Post):
Most Americans against mosque near Ground Zero, poll says September 8, 2010 6:35:9 PM
----------------------------------------

Most Americans say the planned Muslim community center and place of worship should not be built in Lower Manhattan, with the sensitive locale being their overwhelming objection, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Two-thirds of those polled object to the prospective Cordoba House complex near the site of the former twin towers, including a slim majority who express strongly negative views. The new results come alongside increasingly critical public views of Islam: 49 percent of all Americans say they have generally unfavorable opinions of Islam, compared with 37 percent who say they have favorable ones. That’s the most negative split on the question in Post-ABC polls dating to October 2001.
